First of all, because of my genealogy blog, I have been contacted by my first cousin. Her branch of my father’s family and mine had been out of touch, with a few contacts between, for over twenty years. She seems like a very nice person, and I’m really excited about being in contact with her. I think one of the most powerful things about the Internet is the way it can connect people across both space and time. There really aren’t words to express how cool I think this is.
Second, I found Anne. She is currently at Ample Sanity. Change your bookmarks — Fishbucket.net, Anne’s former domain, is defunct.
Happy New Year (Rosh Hashanah).
